[QUOTE]uTorrent re-released as BitTorrent 6.0

29 July 2007 21:41 by DVDBack23
uTorrent re-released as BitTorrent 6.0Last year, BitTorrent Inc. purchased the very popular torrent client uTorrent scaring users that felt the client would soon become obsolete or even worse, embedded with tracking devices by the MPAA and other groups. Some private torrent trackers have even banned later versions of uTorrent since the acquisition.

Yesterday, BT Inc. released BitTorrent 6.0, which is a rebranded uTorrent. However, uTorrent will continue to remain a standalone client and its community will not be replaced either, ever.

BT 6.0 looks just like uTorrent from the outside but now comes with BitTorrent DNA. There is also no longer a built-in search, but that can be added manually.

When asked about the future of uTorrent, CEO Ashwin Navin said this, “utorrent.com and uTorrent community will exist indefinitely. It’s vibrant and growing, and we value the feedback provided in the forums a lot. It is not our plan to fold utorrent.com into bittorrent.com, but foster growth for both independently.”

There is so far no evidence to prove that new uTorrent builds are being built with tracking code or that they are sending data packets to the MPAA, but rest assured I will be sticking with uTorrent 1.6.
"BitTorrent" bought them out a few months back and now they are part of the the system.

I guess I go back to Azureus LOL


Ah modern gaming its like modern film only the watering down of fiction and characters is replaced with shallow and watered down mechanics, gimmicks and shiny-er "people".
